7.3 Classification of Igneous Rocks

Classifying Igneous Rocks According to the Proportion of Dark Minerals. If you unsure of which minerals are present in an intrusive igneous rock, there is a quick way to approximate the composition of that rock. In general, igneous rocks have an increasing proportion of dark minerals as they become more mafic (Figure 7.16).

Rock Key

Descriptions of some of the minerals, as they look in rocks, follow: Quartz: Quartz is the last mineral to crystallize, so in igneous rocks it never has any definite shape. In rocks, it does not show flat faces. It is usually gray in igneous rocks; gray, white, yellow, or red in sedimentary rocks; and gray or white in metamorphic rocks.

OR/17/001 The distribution of natural radioactivity in rocks

Intermediate igneous rocks typically contain between 1 and 6 ppm U. Mafic rocks range from 0.1 to 1 ppm U: average basalt is around 1 ppm U (Alloway, 2013; Cumberland et al., 2016), whereas ultramafic igneous rocks are relatively low in uranium, usually with considerably less than 1 ppm U (Wedepohl, 1978a; Basham and Kemp, 1993).

An igneous rock is formed by the cooling and crystallization of molten rock. The term igneous is derived from ignius, the Latin word for fire.

Titanium (Ti)

The atomic number of titanium is 22 and it belongs to the d-block, period 4, group 4 of the periodic table. Pure titanium is insoluble in water but soluble in concentrated acids. Titanium is the ninth most abundant metal available on earth's crust; it is present in most igneous rocks and their sediments.

Mar 11, 2019Igneous Rocks. Igneous rock, or magmatic rock, is one of the three main rock types, the others being sedimentary and metamorphic. Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava. The magma can be derived from partial melts of existing rocks in either a planet's mantle or crust.

In general, epidote in igneous rocks has rather high Fe 3+ content, which may color it pale yellow-green. Birefringence and color may define zoning, and both increase with Fe 3+ content. The birefringence is usually 2 nd and 3 rd order and so epidote, with its high relief and common lack of color, can resemble olivine.
